RAINER WERNER FASSBINDER RETROSPECTIVE

Gods of the Plague, 1970 -- 91 mins.

In Gods of the Plague, newly released ex-convict Franz slowly but surely makes his way back into the Munich criminal underworld. Fassbinder's artful and mesmerizing homage to the American gangster movie is both visually rich and dramatically understated.

Feature Film Pre-release screening

1000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story
David Henrie (Wizards of Waverly Place) plays the lead in 1,000 to 1: The Cory Weissman Story, the true story of a young basketball player who suffered a catastrophic stroke as a freshman at Gettysburg College but through determination and an indomitable spirit returned to the court for one remarkable moment in the last game of his senior year. The chances of him surviving the stroke at all were bleak. The odds of him returning to the court were astronomical. Multiple Emmy nominee Beau Bridges (Without Warning: The James Brady Story, The Descendants) stars as the Gettysburg College basketball coach George Petrie and Jean Louisa Kelly (Mr. Holland's Opus, Yes, Dear) plays Cory's mother Tina, a physical therapist who became her son's partner in a long recovery.

Legendary trumpet player and six-time Grammy Award winner Arturo Sandoval, who won an Emmy for the score to the HBO film of his own life story, For Love or Country (starring Andy Garcia), composed and recorded the score for the film.

 Following screening, Q&A with James Mathers (cinematographer) and Bob Burris (producer & writer), both alums of the CSUN CTVA program.

The Pin


This new Yiddish language film is an unusual love story. An elderly religious Jewish man working in a morgue as a shomer (a person who keeps the body company until it is ready for burial) is plunged into remembering his past when the body of his long-lost first love arrives. In flashback memories, he recalls their meeting in a deserted Lithuanian barn during the Nazi invasion when both were hiding from the killing squads. Their fear and desperation turn into love and a pledge of eternal commitment -- until an unexpected intrusion changes everything. The intensity and quiet beauty of this film provoke reflection on love, forgiveness, and coming to terms with the past. 83 minutes, in Yiddish with English subtitles. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.

Co-Sponsored by Adat Ari El, Temple Ramat Zion, and CSUN Hillel

Please call (818) 677-4724 or email jewish.studies@csun to request a seat.
